Harold “Hal” Edward Marcus Jr., 86, of Pensacola, passed away Sunday, May 16, 2021. He was born in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1934 to parents Harold Edward Marcus, Sr., and Maxine Bear Marcus. He is survived by his sister, Rosalind Spector. He was a proud graduate of Georgia Tech, from which he graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1956. Hal took great pride in being a patron of the University of West Florida and the founding of the first named college at the University: the Hal Marcus College of Science and Engineering.

In 1957, he married his wife, Patricia Hymans Marcus. They were married for 54 years, until her death in 2012. They moved to Pensacola and worked in the linen supply and industrial uniform industry for many years before taking a job in the Lewis Bear Company, founded by his mother’s family in Pensacola in 1876. Some of Hal’s many passions in life were antique automobiles, traveling, and playing bridge. Hal spent his later years very active in the Azalea Trace community, serving as bingo director, and acting in plays, among other activities.

He is survived by his son, David Edward Marcus, and his daughter, Ellen Bea Bowland. He is predeceased by his son, Jeffrey Andrew Marcus, his wife, Patricia Hymans Marcus, and his parents, Harold Edward Marcus Sr., and Maxine Bear Marcus.
